I suspect that you still have MailMan configured to authenticate by
envelope address and that that address is not in your membership
list or authorised_poster list.

MailMan pays no attention to the Sender: header.  It does by default
read the message envelope and does ignore the From: header however,

Set "Must posts be approved by an administrator?" to "No" in Privacy
